The eponymous character, 21-year-old John R. [=DeMarco=] (JohnnyDepp) is a charming young man who customarily dresses in a long cape and domino mask, and introduces himself as the legendary seducer Literature/DonJuan. Following a thwarted suicide attempt (prompted by a rejection from "the only (woman) who has ever mattered"), he's sent to a mental institution for treatment. A sympathetic psychiatrist, Dr. Jack Mickler (MarlonBrando) takes his case, and is given ten days to cure John of his delusions before his own retirement. But their analytical sessions have an unexpected effect; John's over-the-top romanticism and appealing (if wildly improbable) [[FantasticRomance tales of sexual conquest]] affect his would-be healer more than himself. Dr. Mickler is inspired to spice up his marriage to still-beautiful Marilyn ([[Film/BonnieAndClyde Faye Dunaway]]), whilst developing serious doubts whether John/ Don Juan should be 'cured' at all. "(I need) to get into this world that heís in, and itís a wonderful world."

* TheCameo: Popular Mexican-American singer {{Selena}} has a brief appearance, performing in a hotel lounge. Tragically, this was her first and last movie cameo- she was murdered by her fanclub's president who was stealing money from her, one week before the movie's release date.

* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Nicely played with: John's charms prove to be a distraction for the female staff, so a ScaryBlackMan(''[[Film/{{Friday}} Tommy Lister]]'') is assigned to him. They seem to get along as well, though, and in a few days' time the guy quits his job and moves to Spain in order to study flamenco dancing.

* AwardBaitSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hq2KgzKETBw "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman"]] written by Music/BryanAdams, Michael Kamen and Robert Lange, performed by Mr. Adams. It occupied the number-one ranking for five weeks, on the 'Billboard Hot 100' in the United States (making it the team's third #1 song.) The song went on to earn them their second Oscar nomination, though it lost to [[{{Disney/Pocahontas}} "Colors of the Wind"]]. It's now a standard make-out tune.

* CharacterFilibuster: John gets a couple of these, expounding on what it takes to be the World's Greatest Lover (it's very much to Depp's acting credit that he manages to deliver these convincingly.) Mickler does a more tongue-in-cheek one, complete with a playful fake accent, about being the World's Greatest Psychiatrist.

* MadeASlave: According to one of his yarns, John was sold into slavery and spent two years in the 'service' of lusty Sultana Gulbeyaz. Not that he seemed to've minded much.

* NearRapeExperience: Occurs during the Harem story. John initially resists Sultana Gulbeyaz's overtures, and for a few seconds she seems prepared to use violent means (a knife at his throat) to force his cooperation. But then she opts to try tactile persuasion instead (it works.)
